Directions

For the fries: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the squash sticks on one baking sheet, and place the parsnip sticks on another. Drizzle both with the olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook the squash sticks for about 5 minutes, and cook the parsnips until golden and crisp, turning once or twice, about 30 minutes.

For the dip: Combine the basil, garlic lemon juice zest in a food processor fitted with a steel blade pulse until smooth. With the machine on, slowly pour in the olive oil. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and add Greek yogurt; mix together. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 week.

    my fries turned out soggy in some places, burnt in others. i couldnt get them crispy no matter how high the heat or how long they cooked. and they ended up tasting funny. the pesto sauce was great though.

    This was very good, but the written recipe above is inaccurate and incomplete. If you watched the show, you would be okay, but otherwise, you will run into trouble. I am just addressing the squash fries. First, the butternut squash shrinks, so cut into "steak fry" size strips. I tossed in a container with oil and seasonings, which used less oil and coated evenly. You could also spray with canned olive oil. Cook for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and turn them. put back in oven and cook for 20 to 30 minutes, observing when done.
